QPAC2 Configuration

It is amazing how much information we all forget over time, and I am sure it is written down somewhere, but can someone remind me how to determine what happens when you Execute a file (or use Edit) from the Files sub-menu.

Re: test_task won't copy to DOS4_ on QPC2

How many times does this have to be repeated on the QL scene? The better solution would be to ensure that all emulators and QLs supported the q-emulator method of saving direct to (and of course loading / executing from) DOS formatted devices so that those new to the QL scene (or returning after ma...

Re: How to test if the drive or the cartridge is broken !

And when entering DIR MDV2_ the red LED illuminates normally but the motor does't start? If the cartridge reads in mdv1_ then open up the QL and remove the microdrive roller.
